Feder Still Hurling Misinformed NYT Smears
Topic: Accuracy in Media

We don't watch Don Feder's Boycott NYT website as closely as we perhaps should -- after all, Accuracy in Media, which bankrolls Feder's venture, is apparently so ashamed by its association with Feder's slipshod smears that it won't even link to the project from the main AIM website.

We may have to rethink that stance, because Feder is still coughing up stunning displays of misinformation.

An April 29 article by Feder asserts that New York Times are "unaware" of the Department of Homeland Security report on right-wing extremism, or criticism of it, because the Times never "covered" it.

The problem, of course, is that the Times did cover it here.

And here.

And here.

Feder adds: "Imagine The Times’ response if the Bush administration had issued a report saying feminists, environmentalists and multiculturalists were apt to be recruited by potentially violent left-wing extremists."

Which, of course, it did.

If I were AIM, I'd be ashamed to promote Feder's drivel as well. Which begs the question: If his work is so embarassing and sloppy, why doesn't AIM fire him?
